I have had some killer headaches recently and last night my husband felt a dent on my head. After feeling it I felt the rest of my head and I have two, one in the front left, one in the back right. Both are new, I have not had any head injurys, not even a bumping of the head recently. The back one is about a 50 cent piece size and the front is about a 1/4" wide and goes a inch back. When touched and prodded they send shooting pains through my head.
I called my doctors and they can not get me in until September 11th, should I be concerned? Is there any reason I would have unexplained dents appear in my head?
You should show the strange formations on your head to your general practitioner. Unfortunately for me, it is impossible to say what those bumps on your head are without seeing them...but you'll want to get them checked out by a medical professional.
